I love spring and summer in Napa Wine Country when the vines are full of grapes and Napa Valley glows in the sun. While you may be tempted to spend your whole day in the city of Napa, I recommend driving further north to the charming downtown of St. Helena.
Located right on St. Helena’s Main Street, Archetype is a wonderful choice for brunch. Grab a seat in the warm, daylit greenhouse seating area or sit in the main dining room. The restaurant is designed by Archetype founder and architect Howard Backen.
The sugared donut holes are also highly recommended for dessert, but we decided to get gelato elsewhere on Main Street. We’ll have to return another time for brunch or dinner to try their other dishes, such as the donut holes and the whole grilled artichoke.
Please keep in mind that Archetype features local, seasonal ingredients so menu offerings may be different when you visit.Archetype (1429 Main St, St Helena, CA // 707.968.9200)
